5 Tips for Choosing A School For Your Child.
Families may use some educational choice options, such as ESAs and opportunity scholarships, to fund what will enable their children best to succeed.
- The majority of non-public schools are religious private schools. Many are affiliated with a denomination, local church, or religious faith such as Roman Catholic, Protestant, conservative Christian, Greek Orthodox, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, or other.
- Some secular private schools are college preparatory. Others are based on a particular educational philosophy or approach to learning; have a special education focus, such as schools for the deaf or blind; or have been established for families and children who may be dissatisfied with various aspects of conventional schools.
- Online learning allows students to work with their curriculum and teachers over the Internet—in combination with, or in place of, traditional classroom learning. Online schools can be public or private.
